Year | Event | Reference |

1616 | Tuesday: Several gentlemen (strangers) came to Loughborough and performed a number of changes on the newe bells, which gave greater satisfaction to the townsfolk, when the churchwardens spent xjs in givinge the gentlemen entertainment | H&A/250 |

1828 | Eight members of the Bromley Youths, all named John, rang a peal of Grandsire Triples at St Mary, Lewisham, conducted by John Allen. This was the first “John” peal: the “George's” and the “William's” had each rung one a century earlier. See April 23, 1791 and November 12, 1796. | NP |

1883 | A meeting was held in St Thomas School, Salisbury to consider forming a change-ringing society in the city of Salisbury. The St Edmund ringers, headed by their curate, Revd C L Bode, vehemently opposed this suggestion, maintaining that it would interfere with the city's parochial societies. The majority of the ringers present were not change-ringers and also opposed the suggestion, so the matter was dropped. | BN1883/401 |

1913 | Dr A. B. Carpenter died. | nv |

1986 | In the most violent storm over Southern England for 200 years, many churches were damaged and countless trees uprooted. The spire at Rotherfield, Sussex, was demolished and the bells damaged; the spire at Buxted also suffered as well as many others. | nv |
